A black South African former political prisoner reconciles with a white former guard; a mother forgives her daughter's murderer; a World War II veteran forgives his torturers; a daughter befriends the IRA bomber who killed her father. These stories and many more, and some remarkable photos by Brian Moody, are debuting at a London exhibition entitled "The F Word: Images of Forgiveness." Do you have a story of forgiveness we should include?
Check out The Forgiveness Project's new website, attend the exhibition, and share your stories with me. I'll post the best and forward them on to the project's organisers.
The exhibit runs from January 15th - February 1st at the.gallery@oxo, Ground Floor, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, London SE1. Opening hours, 11am-6pm daily.
To forgive is not just to be altruistic. It is the best form of self-interest. - Archbishop Desmond Tutu
